Archaeoastronomy in Asia
For this section, we will focus on China. Whenever you hear the word "China", what will be the first thing that comes to your mind? The Great Wall? Or a country that is ruled under a communist party? I bet nobody would notice that China is one of the first countries to have started astronomical reseaches, it has written records of celestial events dating back to 40 centeries ago! Their technologies in the past were so advanced that George Ellery Hale, an American astronomer, pointed out that China's astronomical observations in some fields were roughly 20 centuries ahead of Westerners! Would you believe that? The records cover a wide range of topics, in which we'll talk about now.
